Great Quote #5!

This is my simple religion. 
There is no need for temples; 
no need for complicated philosophy. 

Our own brain, our own heart is our temple;
 the philosophy is kindness. 



  1. That is BEAUTIFUL Saz!!
    Simply said, spoken softly it speaks volumes. I love the Dalai Lama and with I knew him personally. His writings are so peaceful :)

  2. Thanks for stopping by, and for your kind comments!!! Lovely thoughts expressed in your post! ~Janine XO

  3. If only everyone could grasp the concept.

  4. The only rule has to be 'Love Thy Neighbour as Thyself'. But how hard!

  5. Having just been in the UK where I was appalled by the distinct lack of consideration and kindness being shown, I began to wonder if I was out of step with the world.

    Glad to know that kindness still exists.


  6. Wow. The Dalai Lama has been one of my inspirations in life. Peace - D

  7. I believe, along with my religious beliefs, that practicing random acts of kindness is a wonderful way to go through life. I have no doubt a good soul such as yourself truly does live that philosophy, not just give it the lip service :-)

  8. Thanks for the reminder...

  9. Something that was going through my mind today. Great indeed!

  10. I do try to do this, but I think that a lot of people are too stressed out in their lives to follow suit these days. It's good to have a gentle reminder.

  11. Holy, holy, holy, indeed, my sweet!

    Fabulous... I am barking mad and knackered to boot - My first full week at work this week, and it's not even Friday, and I am living on coffee, diet Coke, and foods I oughtn't to!

    I hope you are fine and good and fabulous, my dear friend...

    Thank you so for this beauty... xox

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…
